While in school, he was a competitive swimmer. He is currently pursing a master's degree in Business Management. In October 2020, he was named the first Korean muse for Moschino perfume.

Shownu enlisted for his mandatory military service on July 22, 2021, serving as a public service worker due to a shoulder and eye injury. He was discharged on 21 April, 2023. Edit Biography
